About the Author

Gordon A. Craig was a Scottish-American historian of German and diplomatic history. He studied history at Princeton and was a Rhodes Scholar at Balliol College, Oxford, before serving in the US Marine Corps during World War II. In 1941, he coedited the book Makers of Modern Strategy: Military Thought from Machiavelli to Hitler, which was intended to serve as a strategic thinking guide for military leaders during World War II. Some of Craig’s other books include The GermansThe Politics of the Prussian Army 1640–1945; Europe Since 1914; The End of Prussia; Force and Statecraft: Diplomatic Problems of Our Time; and Politics and Culture in Modern Germany. Craig was unique in that he envisioned history as less of a social science and more of a human discipline, seeking to interconnect the study of history with the study of literature. Gordon A. Craig passed away in 2005.
